    They are beautifully made. I'm already thinking about my next purchase from them.

    Got the All saints Jasper Blazer from TK Maxx for 69. Planning on wearing it with a white tee, silk scarf, jeans and brogue boots.

    I'd love to be too but I think I'd better hold off on more shoes for the sake of my bank balance...

    Decided to upgrade my black tie rig so bought a nicely fitted marcella evening shirt from TM Lewin and a vintage 60s wool tuxedo with shawl lapels, one button, silk lapels etc from eBay. Should be a significant improvement on my current too-big not-really-an-evening shirt and poorly cut, poly/viscose barely-a-tux from M&S.

    Ah man that is a bargain, looks brilliant. How does everyone on here find such bargains in TK? Mine never has anything really worthwhile!

    That is such a nice blazer, perfectly balanced between smart and casual as far as blazers are concerned. I'm jealous. Very.

    It is an awesome blazer. But for the look you suggest, I think it can look potentially 'gay'. I'm not trying to throw that word around, but I think this blazer needs to at least be paired with an awesome knit or a shirt. I think a knitted t-shirt could work, but a plain white tee and a silk scarf (unless knotted) can look so wrong in certain situations. It can work really work too, but be careful!

    I've never really got on with blazers casually. They just aren't casual.

    The closest I have to a casual one is a tweed one with quite a bold purple windowpane check. That can work for casual but even then, when I threw it on to go to the pub for Sunday lunch a couple of weeks ago, people were like "what's with the blazer, Pins?"

    It's a fair comment. I'm going to wear it tomorrow with a white oxford shirt and burgundy cable-knit jumper.

    Tbf, if you're not going to wear blazers casually, then when are you going to wear them? Surely that's the point of a blazer, to bridge the divide between a unstructured blazer (quite casual) and a suit jacket (formalwear).

    You are right about peoples reactions though. I think it's sad that it's now considered overly-smart to wear any kind of tailoring.

    Went a bit mental with my uniform allowance at work today.





    I'm also thinking about getting these:



    I need some more decent winter weather footwear and my style (and budget) just doesn't really require brogue boots or the like, I've already got some suede chukka and red wing esque boots anyway. I quite like the idea of having some grown up trainers that I can just throw on.
